  • $10990 Versa advertised is not available. We got internet quote for one and when we went to dealer, they tried to get us to buy a more expensive model, saying that model was hard to find. When we persisted, they said they would try to find one. After a week, still none available. Seems this is a "bait and switch" ploy.

    All good things must pass, and the time for my 2001 Altima to retire has come. 219,000 miles and it doesn't owe me a thing. On the bright side, the 2012 Versa 6-speed will hit my driveway Saturday morning. This will be the 4th Versa for our household, all 6 speeds. A 2007 (currently at 109,000) a 2010 that saved the wife when it was rear-ended while sitting still by an F-150 and totaled, and a 2011 (currently at 38,000) that replaced the 2010.

  • I tried my best to get a deal on my 2012 Versa sedan. They only had two in stock. One was stripped down and the other an SL. I bought the SL however they only budge $200 off the sticker. I'm sure in a few months when they've been out a while I could shop around and get a better price. So far I do enjoy the car.

    Is your 2012 Versa the Hatchback or Sedan? If it's a 6-speed manual, it has to be the 1.8S Hatchback or 1.6S Sedan...right?
  • Hi everyone,
    I am planning on going to see a local Nissan dealer in the Tampa Bay area. The quoted me for a Nissan Versa 1.6 S CVT (2012) for $13825.
    My parents paid $17,500 for 2011 Versa with $2000 down. They live in the Philadelphia area.

    I did a True Market Value price for the area Tampa Bay (where I live) and they said : $13404.

    I am a female and I won't be taking anyone with me. Any advice on how to handle and negotiate would be helpful.

    I know the price range that I am looking for and I am willing to walk out as I refuse to make myself car poor due to high payments.

    I am planning on calling the dealer within the next few hours. Any help would be appreciated.
  • Once you have determined the price that you are comfortable with, I would then get the dealership to break down the out the door price to make sure there are no hidden surprises. Next if you plan to finance the vehicle I'd recommend getting approval for the loan before you walk into the dealership, sometimes they may be able to beat it, others times not but best to be prepared ahead of time. Once in the finance office they will attempt to sell you extended warranties, maintenance and other types of packages so decide beforehand whether you want them or not, don't let them talk you into anything you don't want. Best advice a car salesman once gave me is to not do all the talking, the more you talk the easier you are to read.
  • Ordered my 5speed versa today at apple nissan in york pa for delivery in march. $12.7K (TTL included) .
  • Its sedan with 1.6 engine
  • VERY DISAPPOINTED WITH APPLE NISSAN! ORDERED VERSA 5SPEED JUST FEW DAYS AGO. TODAY STOPPED AT DEALERSHIP TO FIND OUT ABOUT THE CAR AND MANAGER INFORMED ME THAT DEAL IS OFF,because nissan stopped making versas with 5speed transmission.
  • Opinion of Consumer Report:
    Nissan's subcompact Versa sedan is redesigned for 2012 but it's disappointing. In a departure from its predecessor, the small car is now noisy and the interior is blatantly cheap. The car drones as it gathers speed and the continuously variable transmission accentuates engine noise. Handling, though secure, lacks agility. The ride is complaint but rather jumpy. To its credit, the rear cabin is relatively roomy .
  • In the government's new, more strenuous crash testing for 2011, the Versa earned an overall rating of two stars out of a possible five, with three stars for overall frontal crash protection and two stars for overall side crash protection.

    Your beef is really with Nissan corporate and not the local dealer really...all they can do is order a certain car but if corporate decides to no longer make that certain configuration, why is it your dealers fault? Maybe you should find another car that suits your needs better. We have a '09 SL hatch with the CVT in the stable and it's been a pretty good car overall though we've had a few problems fixed under warranty, cosmetic mainly. But we're more than happy with the car! :)

    By the way, why are you now trying to trash a car that you were going to buy before you found out that configuration is no longer available? If you knew this information before and you still wanted to purchase it, why now are you trashing it? Or maybe I'm confused here?

  • my daughter had been looking for the 2012 versa s, 5 speed manual, it is not an easy car to come by, after a local dealer promised us the car and failed to deliver, we expanded our search, we talked to dpatrick after searching the internet, they were very helpful and told us to come on over and they would do everything they could to help us out, we drove 2 hours and 20 minutes in the rain and fog early sat morning to look at the only manual we could find anywhere and we were also looking at the versa s, automatic, we were welcomed warmly, and told the manual had sold the evening before, my daughter was already leaning to the automatic because of the availabilty of the manual, i am happy to say she drove her new versa s, automatic home today, the rain stopped just in time too, the sales staff we very helpful, listening to our offer, and considering what we had to say in the matter, after agreeing on the sales price, below dealer invoice, we started talking financing, they were able to beat our local bank by over 2 points and beat our previous approval thru nissan by 1/2 point, we were pleased, upon signing the paperwork we were offered the infamous extended warranty,(my husband never buys these) we were quick to refuse the extension, it was going to raise her payments 25+a month, just more than she was comfortable with, the finance guy asked us why we didnt want it, we explained that my husband it not a fan of extended warranties, and also it was just raising the payment too much, he asked us what the max she was comfortable paying without worrying, we told him, he then offered us a lower interest rate, using coupons and incentives he had available to help, he then told us for 15$ a month she would be covered by the extended warranty for 7 yrs or 75000, with a 0$ deductible!! still a few dollars under what we were looking for, and now we have the peace of mind that comes with the extended warranty, it covers towing, battery jump, even locking your keys in you car, all at 0$, i think the sales and staff at dpatrick did a great job of making us very happy customers, they treated us like people, and really seemed to listen, hear, and consider what we asked, then followed thru with a great deal, thanks to dpatrick, on behalf of my husband and daughter, it's great to know there are some good guys still out there, i will send anyone who is looking for a great deal to dpatrick, in evansville, in, where you feel like your friends are there to help!!!! :)

    I purchased my new Nissan Versa with 5 speed manual this past Monday afternoon 9/24 from the dealer in Fairfield, Connecticut. I was lucky to find a 5 speed as there does not seem to be many around. The dealer was great and was able to complete the deal from start to finish and driving off the lot in just under 3 hours. Everything was very straight forward and clear and my old car was traded in. The new Versa is great to drive with the 5 speed, it has a lot of pick up, even with the AC on, and is easy to shift. I particularly like the seating position and adjustable seat. The car has a good feel on the highway. For a small car, the passenger room is quite spacious and the trunk is cavernous. The 15 inch tires are providing a smooth ride. Price with taxes, regie, prep, etc. $12,900.

    Great deal at Jeff Wyler Nissan Eastgate: $15110 OTD ($13910 actual price...$17400 sticker) with Convenience Pkg, Splash Guards, Mats, & Paint & Fabric warranty. Difficult deal, but not their fault, I had a very tight budget. Very honorable people & no attempted tricks (which I would've caught anyway) during negotiation or in finance. If you're within 2 hrs of Cincinnati, it's worth the drive. HIGHLY recommend them. Ken Bush, Salesperson. Best, Paul Mansfield, Covington, KY

    Hi, I leave in Houston. Can I have the name of the dealer please. I'm looking for a Versa too, and I have a really tight budget. Thanks

    I just got a 2013 Versa S Plus w/ automatic transmission for $13,600 drive out. That's the best price I can get in Houston.
  • drpauldrpaul Posts: 8
    Congratulations! You got a very good deal--well done. My dealership is in the Cincinnati area. Peace, Paul

    Hello everyone,

    This is my first post here but have used this site's forums over the years for many questions I've had about other cars in the past.

    So, I just purchased a used 2010 Versa hatchback (all power options, automatic) certified preowned from the dealer with 55,000 miles on it. It is still under the 5 year, 60k mile warranty and being certified preowned it also has the 7 year, 100k mile powertrain warranty as well. I also purchased the security plus gold preferred warranty which covers almost everything else (at least a lot of things) that could go wrong with the car for 7 years, 100k miles for $1700. I paid $8600 for the car itself (before taxes and warranty).

    My question is two-fold: Did I get a good deal on the warranty (no, I didn't call around for other quotes) and do I really need the Gold Preferred warranty?

    Any suggestions would be helpful! Thanks!

    Jon
